George Russin

American (1910–2010)

About the artist:

George Russin's exceptional creative abilities were revealed early in his studies. Born in New York, he attended the High School of Music and Art to pursue both fields of study. There, he was awarded the St. Gaudens Medal for Art plus a scholarship to Pratt Institute. After army service in World War II, he decided to devote his studies entirely to fine art and took advantage of his scholarship. He graduated from Pratt, recieving the Bronze Medal for achievement: later he attended the Art Students' League. 'the little studio' has presented several shows of his work in New York, Boston, and Beverly Hills; recently La Napoule Art Foundation of France purchased two of his paintings for their collection. Before attending the League, Mr. Russin entered a period of extensive travel; and during his association with 'the little studio' he has traveled further, constantly searching for the wonderful subjects that inspire him to paint his personal and expressive canvasses replete with rhythm and color he finds in music-his other deep interest. Russin's sensitivity to the essential theme of his subjects is splendidly displayed in his exciting and imaginative palettle knife technique. The artist gives a bold statment of his 'figure,' coupling this with background 'color vibrations' for the completeness of his characterizations. "His semi-abstract manner is rooted in realism. A shattering of the surface into many small planes does not disturb the essential contours. He has worked out a personal means of expression, and the planes ar ereplaced by dabs of color to give a flickering vibrant quality." - Art News "Russin's paintings' shoe intelligence in interplay." - Carlyle Burrows - NY Herald Tribune "Mr. Russin builds up sensuous glazed surfaces in oils through a deft handling of the palette knife he is a painter of talent..." - Robert Taylor - Boston Sunday Herald
